Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Sure...Brit-

NYSpirit...soy, and many other plants contain phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are not bioidentical to the estrogen in our bodies, but they mimic estrogen, and are much milder than actual estrogen.

We, at Organic Excellence, use phytoestrogens (not from soy) to help women through the hot flashes that sometimes occur during menopause in a very mild way.
We use red clover leaf as the primary source of our phytoestrogens.

If you do use phytoestrogens from soy - make sure the soy is organic because about 80% of the soy in the US is genetically modified.

How about testosterone? Does Organic Excellence have phytotestosterone?

Nope - Organic Excellence has no testosterone or anything that mimics testosterone.

Default Thank you Brit !!

I really enjoyed the Cooking in the Light show on the truth about soy.

It's very sad how we are continually duped by the industries. When I speak of the dangers of soy to my customers...they all look at me as if I came from another planet (which I did, but I dont tell them!!)

Thank you again

Hugs
Pema

Red face Soy

Dear Brit

The last week I have some doubt about SOY, and I wanted to ask you about or someone , thus I have used SOY the last many, many years make china food, Asiatic foot etc.

DO YOU MEAN THE SAME SOY WE USE HERE IN EUROPE, TO MAKE FOOD BY SOYA, I am confused thus I thought it was very healthy.

Please tell me, if it is the same http://www.prb.com.cn/english/file/n2_5e.asp

It really scarred me Brit, thus NOW I understand many things in my body, if it is so that SOY is full of unhealthy things, it is not good for millions world wide.

http://www.soya.be/soy-prostate-cancer.php

This make me confused Brit , I have to go back to the olive oil virgin, which are the best, I think??

Hi Ulla
Yes, in my research and speaking with naturopaths around the world soy is one of the worst things we can be putting into our bodies. It doesn't matter if it is soy purchased in Europe, the Americas, or Asia - it isn't good.

And don't feel bad - I bought into the "health" aspects of it, too. We drank soy milk, ate soy yogurt, etc... until our doctor told us to get off of it and do some serious research.

Tofu every now and then is ok - but we were lead to believe this is a staple of the Asian diet and one of the things keeping them healthier than the rest of the world. In a word this is 'bunk'. Pure spin and nothing more. I spoke with nutritional consultants in Japan and Hong Kong who said that prior to the 80s (when large companies started pushing soy as healthy product) soy was not a large part of their diet. Then - because the west was saying it was so great - they started drinking soy milk, etc. Now they are having the same problems other people in the world are having that directly relate to soy.

Extra virgin olive oil, almond milk and almond cheese, (or other nuts) snap peas or green beans instead of edaname, these are all healthier choices - especially when one consideres the genetic modifications that can now be found in the bulk of soy crops. I sure am not interested in ingesting herbicides and pesticides with my meal!
Love

Hi Ulla
Yes, it could be the sugar and it could also be the soy itself. Several studies indicate soy may have a direct relationship with high cholesterol and also high blood pressure.
Love

But this isn't just about organic vs. GM - it's about soy -
I just posted my April newsletter for Cooking in the Lite - it's all about soy... it's on the site for those who wish to read.

On my taboo list... soy is neck and neck with sugar!

"Unless it says organic - it isn't." Brit

Isn't that a sad statement about the quality of foods available to us today Even sadder is the fact that it is true.

We can do the best we can though and stay aware of such things when we do our shopping.

Love,
WoDi

The problem I have with almond milk (in trying to avoid soy milk) is that almond milk is high in sodium. It is twice the amount of sodium found in soy milk. I've yet to find a product that reduces the amount of sodium AND does not add sugar.
